1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: No! I won't make/fix/sew/knit your....!! on: February 09, 2006 02:23:35 PM
Just yesterday my darling fiance handed me 4 pair of jeans and asked me to patch them which is ..well..I consider mandatory. better than buying new jeans for him. but the 4 pair he handed me looked like a few threads holding together a few pockets  Undecided They had previous patches coming off and ..Oh it was just not worth saving and I told him so and he got peeved and said I just didn't want to do them. Grrr I just threw the pants and some patches at him and said you do it then. He was pretty pissed but he started to try and pin them in place anyway and he later came to me red faced and apologized. He even willingly threw them out which is a shock cuz he never throws away anything! So Today I was nice enough to buy him 2 new pair of jeans. I'm such a sucker i know. But at least I won't have to patch anything for a while hee hee.

Also his boss lady saw some of the patch jobs I had done to his awful jeans and shirts and has asked my grandma if I would like a job repairing her clothes. She buys pricey clothes and they charge her a mint at the cleaners to just sew on a button or fit a ripped hem. I thought she might have like a Few shirts and pant suits or something but my Gran cleans her house and said it was a PILE of clothes. I could make a fortune here. but do I wanna spend the next 6 months sewing hems and buttons? humm... Huh

It's ridiculous the lengths people will got to ask for something crafty. My sister whom I haven't seen or talked to in over a year called me a few months ago to ask me for (well it was a gag gift kinda thing which is slightly X rated  Embarrassed hee hee) anyway i made her one for her bf like 4 years ago and she calls from someplace in Florida (I'm 2 states away) and asks me to make her several more for her new bf and some friends. She goes into detail the sizes and colors she wants and I'm just standing there in shock. I mean she didn't even slip it into a conversation I just pick up the phone say hello and she launches into this I want/ could you/ I need speech! And then she has the nerve to say 'oh. by the way we are only gonna be at this address for another month so could you send them by next week. gotta run now bye.' I think I stood there looking at the phone for like 10 full minutes before my brain left shock and went full red alert pissed.

I mean my daughter can beg me for a new sweater and I will most likely comply. My fiance can ask for new flannel PJ bottoms and he most likely will and did get them for Christmas this year. Even my mom can call and ask for some new Christmas ornaments or a lap afghan and I would start on it as soon as I had time with no thought of the price or time spent. But for my own sister to not call me for a whole year and then call not to say hi or tell me she's doing alright or tell me what state she moved to on a whim this time..but to ask..no demand a craft from me AND give me a deadline. omg now I'm all angry again..I'm gonna go now.. Angry

Inconsiderate non-crafty people suck!!

That looks great.You could use a fabric pen and just colour the lining edges. My daughter used to like trees too.She decided trousers and shorts were a good idea when she realised boys could see her underwear when she climbed.
yah another use for my sharpie pens! coloring in naughty pocket lining  Grin

I never thought of coloring them before thanks!

oh and she's not worried about people seeing her undies  Roll Eyes It's a battle to keep her feet on the floor and not in the air at church. I thought of making her wear those cute little bloomers that toddlers wear to cover thier diapers but she hates them.

she's a tom-girl who likes to wear girly clothes. I've tried to explain that dresses and maryjanes are not for tree climbing and dinosaur digging in the back yard but she refuses to listen( as all little kids do) so alas her last pair of mary janes were buried in the back yard and since been dug back up,then chewed by the puppy. why she buried them i have no idea  Huh

You can tell by her cruddy socks that I send her out with shoes, she just doesn't always come back  with shoes.  Undecided

When I was a kid and we'd have a party we'd cover the dance area in bubble wrap..it was fun to "hop 'n' pop" lol and we would put it under our sleeping bags when we went camping. comfy and it annoyed our mom  Grin
